I eyed the warped wall. It looked terrifyingly tall. At only 5 feet tall, I wondered if I could make it up. I’d never tried before, but I’d watched plenty of people zip right up on “American Ninja Warrior” like it was strolling up an escalator. I was at one of the ninja warrior-style obstacle […]

There’s something magical about standing at the base of the Flatiron Mountains that is both breathtaking and perspective-giving. That’s the first and most obvious thing that draws people to Boulder’s Chautauqua Park, located right at the foot of the Flatirons. This historic, 120-year-old park is one of Boulder’s most famous landmarks. It’s the gateway to […]

Whether you want to immerse yourself in yoga, film, Shakespeare, craft beer, or all of the above (although that fusion could get a little weird), Boulder’s got a festival for that.
